Just up the coast from Brisbane, the buzzing beach town of Redcliffe offers an escape from the city. Hotels in Redcliffe come in all shapes and sizes: plush apartments with sea views, charming B&Bs with personal touches and motels for those who value convenience above all else. Here’s our round-up of the best Redcliffe hotels for your next beach break – bookable on Culture Trip.
As the name suggests, it’s all about the sea view at these swish places to stay. One-, two- and three-bedroom apartments feature balconies overlooking the ocean, perfect for an evening sundowner. Full kitchens and open living spaces provide private places to hang out, and each apartment comes with a laptop-friendly desk if you want to work remotely. If you’re feeling flush, splash out on the oceanfront townhouse, with stylish rooms set over three levels and views from every floor.
This classically styled bed and breakfast sits in lush gardens with a swimming pool at the centre. Enjoy a tipple under the shade of the wooden pergola, or take your breakfast out on the terrace amid banana leaves. A continental spread is on offer to start the day, and a hot meal can be booked for the evening. Each room has a touch of old-world charm, with sconces and pale pastel walls.
Ultra-modern and glass-fronted, this swanky hotel makes the most of its beachfront location with balconies and terraces overlooking the ocean. Even the swimming pool comes with sea views. There are hotel rooms for those that just want to take advantage of the waterfront bars and restaurants of an evening, or one- to three-bedroom apartments if you want the option of self-catering.
If you’re arriving in Redcliffe by car, the Redcliffe Motor Inn is a great option. With a classic motel design, it’s all about convenience and comfort. Slate-grey bedding and neon-bright cushions give each room a 21st-century feel, and you can choose between deluxe doubles, twins and studios with kitchenettes. Breakfast can be delivered to your room on request, or you can head out to one of the many restaurants a short walk away.
Right in the centre of Redcliffe, La Vida on Anzac is a short stroll from the beach, with bars, cafes and restaurants on your doorstep. Accommodation is in studio apartments with balconies and kitchenettes, or in one-, two- or three-bedroom apartments with full kitchens, living areas and balconies. When you’re not hitting the beach, spend time by the pool or on a beanbag chair at the sun terrace.
It’s the personal touches that bring this family-run B&B to the forefront. The shared lounge is a haven packed with books, board games and free tea and coffee throughout the day. Breakfast is served al fresco, with a spread of cereals, fresh fruit and hot drinks to get you started. Rooms are boho and beachy, with sea blue accents and macramé cushions, and some come with outdoor seating areas just outside the door.
Footsteps from Lake Eden, the Best Western Plus North Lakes Hotel looks out over tranquil waters. Explore the walking and cycling trails around the lake, or make the fifteen-minute drive to the soft sand of Redcliffe’s beaches. Rooms are apartment-style, with kitchenettes for a quick breakfast and plush living areas for unwinding. Upgraded options come with a jetted tub in the bathroom, and most have a balcony overlooking the lake. The on-site Boardwalk Restaurant is a casual dining spot, perched over the crystal shallows.
